for that conservative to call in and reach out. congressman king is another one. he is trying to state's al-qaeda. >> stephanie: he is not alex jones, or some lunatic fringe. he's a united states congressman. >> caller: exactly. that's my point. he is supposed to be responsible. he has been anti-muslim since day one. he's not -- he's not representative of a lot of other people in new york and it's really up setting to have somebody like that -- >> stephanie: jill, no matter what side of the aisle you are on, that's human, because of 9/11, when you hear saudi, you go of course because of patriot's day you look at the connection to tim mcveigh and go, oh, of course. but we don't know. >> i have gut feelings but i'm not expressing them yet. and i want to hear facts not just speculation. and that's what those people on fox news and the "new york post," and others they do that too much. >> for the right-wing there is no terrorism except for islamic terrorism. >> stephanie: yeah. is there going to be as much screaming about the word terror if it turns out to be right-wing domest
